I sent an ITA in November/December and it did nothing for me. I think they get a zillion of them...

+1 but waiting since 7/17
Last interview date last year was 2/21 so its coming up hot. I would say at this point any II left to give out are probably if someone withdraws their II. Probably somewhere around 20-30 interview invites left to give out but thats complete speculation.

Anyone still waiting on getting an interview? I have heard nothing yet since submitting my secondary on 9/4 (submitted two update letters since then). Does anyone know if they are still extending interviews and until when?

Thanks!
+2, complete 7/24

I think A’s should be sent out today! They had a committee meeting yesterday.
I may have missed it earlier in the thread but when does the committee meet? Every 2nd Monday of the month or is it more often?

“tomorrow” lmao

I hope I don't sound ungrateful but their short notice interview offers are a bit ridiculous! Especially as someone that had to fly from CA and find accommodations in time - I would've saved so much money if I could have booked my flight in advance. I'm already pretty broke and this doesn't help haha

To be fair it was probably a cancellation if its tomorrow.... Most of these are probably cancellations since its the end of the cycle.

Oh I’m not even talking about the one for the next day. Even if I tried to book a flight for next Tuesday or Thursday, It would’ve been so expensive. My interview was scheduled 2 weeks out and my boss was still kinda pissed I didn’t give them more notice. It’s just hard to plan around

Just got an II but the flights there and back are going to cost me nearly a grand. Do you think the school could help me financially? OOS and Underserved

Edit: (if the school cant help out)

Hey try finding someone who can get a buddy pass (ie works for an airline, family of someone), look into trains, cost of driving, or even start a GoFundMe.

Id chip in as much as I can. Its not much but its something and maybe with the contribution of others on here + reddit you can cover a portion of it.

How long does it normally take to hear back after interview?
On my interview date on 10/22 we were told 4-6 weeks. But its variable. Someone on here from my interview date reported hearing an acceptance 4 weeks later. I was called for my accepted on 1/14. So... as you can see it really can vary. I was personally hurt by thanskgiving/christmas/new years tho.

accepted here 2 days ago! interviewed 1/16
cannot believe it, so so excited about this school :)
I also interviewed on 1/16 but haven’t heard back yet.... does this mean I’m in the rejection pool :(? Or that they just haven’t gotten to me? Dang now I’m even more nervous

Nope — I waited like 3 months cause an interview took awhile to submit his report. You go to a selection committee first that gives u a score and then you go to the executive committee. Just means you weren’t brought up at the meeting !

So friends at Stritch are telling me they’re changing our curriculum
Just so were clear they sent out an internal email to faculty last week saying the curriculum is changing. Upon clarification-- the curriculum will be overhauled -- IN A COUPLE YEARS. For our class there will be some "slow adjustments" aka just re-order things. It is going to be pretty much the same.

I had marked in my spreadsheet that I hadn't sent an update yet so I went and submitted an update with more volunteer work and shadowing as well as an unofficial transcript from fall. Then I looked back on my application and turns out I did submit that exact same update earlier this month and just didn't mark it down so now they have duplicates. *facepalm*
